Nature is below us, around us and above us.  Let’s explore it! Each day we will meet a live animal, create a nature themed craft, read a nature story, and go on a destination hike.  From salamanders under our feet, to camouflaged creatures of the prairie and birds in the woods, get ready to experience it all. Dress to be outside and to get dirty!

Wouldn’t you love to know what animals are doing when we aren’t looking?  Luckily for us, they leave behind many clues that help us solve the mystery.   Become a Quarry Hill C.S.I. agent and join us in the investigation.  Investigate tracks, bones, scat and more using our nature detective skills throughout the park! Dress to be outside and to get dirty!
